Banyan joins SmartSky installation partner network
As a sales and installation partner for SmartSky, Banyan has experienced the system itself. It is particularly pleased with the streaming-level performance for smaller corporate jets.

SmartSky Networks has appointed Banyan Air Service as its new sales and installation partner. The Florida-based full-service MRO operation is now able to install and upgrade private jets and turboprop aircraft with fast and reliable connectivity solutions.

“We are proud to provide more services than any other aircraft support facility in Florida and are committed to offering our customers the latest and greatest enhancements to their aircraft. As a sales and installation partner for SmartSky, we have experienced the system for ourselves. We are pleased to say it delivers an impressive connectivity experience, as advertised, and we are excited to bring this game-changing product to our customers, especially streaming-level performance for smaller corporate jets,” says Banyan director of avionics Danny Santiago.

Banyan is authorised to install both the SmartSky Flagship system for mid to large cabin jets as well as SmartSky LITE, the streaming-level connectivity solution for smaller business aircraft.

Based at Fort Lauderdale Executive airport, Banyan is an FAA and EASA approved repair station and has earned repair station designations and approvals for over 10 countries. The company's track record ensures low downtime for connectivity installations and upgrades as well as other air services and its maintenance division is recognised as an FAA Diamond Award winner.

“Banyan is one of the most highly regarded aircraft service facilities in the country and is known for offering its customers world-class service as evidenced by its industry accolades year after year. This expertise makes Banyan the perfect fit to meet the growing demand for SmartSky's industry-leading inflight connectivity performance,” adds MRO account management director Aria Bahawdory. “Customers in the business aviation marketplace are demanding best-in-class service, and SmartSky delivers.”
